These gorgeous large earrings will make a sophisticated statement! These clip earrings are puffy in appearance, and are worn so that they are a diamond shape with a gold tone (brass?) strip across the middle. They are fairly large at 1 inch square and very puffy at almost 1/2 of an inch thick from front to back. The clips work perfectly. There is a warm vintage patina, and they are hallmarked 925, Taxco, TA-03, Mexico. This hallmark is referenced as silversmith RC--possibly Maria Castillo, on pages 267 and 222 of Bille Hougarts' THE LITTLE BOOK OF MEXICIAN SILVER TRADE AND HALLMARKS, 2006 ed. These marvels, although hollow, have a thick sterling exterior, with no dings or dents. Somewhat substantial, yet lightweight at .4 ounces or 10 grams. They are in excellent vintage condition with a very warm patina, they could be polished up to look, like new or preserved as they are for Mexican silver collectors.
Please note that I do not polish vintage silver unless you request that I do so at checkout. I'm happy to shine them up with my polishing cloth~just let me know!
